This time we’re joined by town planner and
environmental activist Mark Allen to discuss the issue of urban sprawl, where
urban development takes over previously undeveloped areas.
This has a variety of negative impacts,
including on humans, other animals and the environment as a whole.
Mark advocates urban villages as a response to
these problems, as well as arguing that high rise is not the only response
required to address urban sprawl.
